Welcome to the web site of the Parish of Essendine, a village of some 365 people on the eastern edge of Rutland. The Parish forms part of the Ryhall and Casterton Ward of Rutland County Council and is represented on the County Council by two County Councillors, Richard Coleman and David Wilby.

The Parish Council consists of a Chairman and five Councillors who meet in Essendine Village Hall. The date and the agenda for the meeting is posted on the notice board and on the meetings calendar on this web site 3 clear days before the meeting date.

As an elected body we are responsible to you, the people we represent. Attending a council meeting is the best way to find out what we do. Look in the Meetings Calendar to find dates for our public meetings.

Where do we get our money from?

Each year a sum of money called a 'precept' is collected through your council tax. This money is used by the Parish Council to improve facilities and services for local people.

NHS GP Practice Survey

On Monday we have launched a GP practice survey exploring views and experiences of GP-led (primary care) services during the Covid-19 pandemic to help us build on the things that people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland like about the service and to identify areas of care that could be improved.

Over the last year, Coronavirus has placed enormous strain on all areas of the NHS, including your General Practice. Despite that, General Practices have remained 'open' providing more than 6 million appointments over the last 12 months, with the majority still providing face-to-face. Some changes have been made to keep both patients and staff safe though, including increased use of both telephone assessment and, in some cases, online consultation where appropriate. Right now, your GP and GP practice is handling more appointments than ever before. More »

We would love to hear your opinion and about your experiences that will help us to plan for service delivery in the future. Even if you haven't visited your General Practice recently it's still really important that we hear from you so that we can understand the way care needs to be provided to you in the future. The gathered feedback will inform a series of discussions going forward to help create a shared vision for modern, sustainable primary care.

The survey closes on Monday 12th July 2021.
